Night Pennant 2007

A message from Geri

It's time for the Oratory Real Tennis Club's annual Night Pennant Tournament! For anyone who doesn't know, the format is five teams of six players headed by four wonderful captains and me, all competing for the coveted trophy. Each team will play four matches over the course of the Autumn term on Wednesday evenings from 8:00pm. The evenings are fun and a good way to meet new members.

If you would like to take part please sign up or speak to the Pro's at The Oratory. Your team captain will then contact you in due course with match dates to put in your diary. Alternatively, if your not able to commit to a team you can sign up as a reserve. Places are going fast!!

I hope you enjoy the rest of the summer. See you on court!!
